. introduce yourself. >> i am from helena, montana. i appreciate you coming here. mr. president, i make a living selling individual health- insurance. obviously, i have paid very close attention to this insurance debate. as you know, the health insurance companies are in favor of health-care reform and have a number of very good proposals before congress to work with government to provide insurance for the uninsured and cover individuals with pre-existing conditions. why is it that you have changed your strategy from talking about health care reform to health insurance reform and decided to vilify the insurance companies? >> that is a fair question. first of all, you are absolutely right that the insurance companies in some cases have been constructive. i will give you a particular example. aetna has been working with us. that is absolutely true. there are other companies who have done the same. i want to be honest with you. i max will testify that in some cases, what we have seen is also funding in opposition by some other insurance companies to any kind of reform proposals. my intent
and so, i went on -- >> montana. >> and so i went searching for replacement coverage for the employees that had been laid off, only to find out that cobra doesn't apply to me because i have less than 20 employees. and that conservatively affects 80% of all workers in montana. so, they were pretty much out on their own. and i was wondering if what we can do to eliminate discrimination against small employers, as an example, we're a lumberyard, we're out there lifting boards and packing stuff all day long. every one of my remaining seven employees are fit. so, why are we and i as an employer able to provide a lesser level of benefits to my employees and yet an employer with 30 employees who sit in cubicles on their butts instead of working them off gets a better rate? >> that was a pretty good question. so, for all of you who are all sitting on your -- what did you call them? no. as i said, small businesses is probably as vulnerable as anybody. and one of the things that max has been working very hard on -- and this just doesn't get advertised, but i want to make sure e
to turn to the president now. he is on his way to montana for another health care town hall. why montana? is there an expectation for a lively debate at this town hall? >> montana is a historical red state. there might be a bit more of an opportunity for controversy. on tuesday in portsmouth, new hampshire, he solicited more skeptical questions. we will see if that plays out. montana is also the home of max baucus. that committee will be the center of gravity. when congress comes back in the middle of september, the white house has set this deadline for the committee. if it does not, the white house has indicated, it might proceed strictly on its own without the -- without republicans on board. max baucus is a central figure in this legislative drama. rick: we want to hear from you if you have received an unsolicited email from the white house. tell us about it. for moron this, we have a couple of great guests. we're also joined by an editor for "the national review." everybody hates chain letters. >> particularly, if they are coming from the white house. rick: what do you make all of th

takes his health care message to montana. remember, there was little drama during his last health care town hall. this time, he is in historical republican territory and people might have hard questions. >> why is it that you change your strategy? >> how can we be assured? >> what would happen? >> you cannot tell us how you will pay for it. shepard: how well did the president do at convincing critics? the president did hear from a least a couple of as critics today. he took questions for half an hour in montana, don't you know? the crowd was expected to be tougher than the last town hall in new hampshire. montana has gone republican in nine of the last 10 presidential elections. that area is a bit more purple and the questions were not very hard-hitting until one man identified himself as a proud member of the national rifle association. he wanted to know how we are going to cover the cost of all of this. >> you cannot tell us how you will pay for this. you are saving here, over there, take a little money here, but you have no money. the only way you will get the money is to raise taxe

expect or what can we expect from the crowd in montana? >> we are hearing that outside this airport hangar there will be demonstrations. a local tea party group predicts hundreds rallying against this legislation but there are at least one group supporting healthcare reform that will be there. in new hampshire outside there was a little bit of a rally but inside a more sympathetic crowd than we have seen at the confrontational town halls. the white house said nobody was preselected, that not all town halls are screaming matches. tuesday in new hampshire this was done by an onstar hotline lottery. today it is a line-up of first-come, first-served so we expect the dynamic could be different. as you mentioned senator max baucus will be attending. his home state. he is the key figure. he is part of the gang of six a bipartisan group, three republicans, lee democrats trying to negotiate in the senate a compromise deal. so a key figure. bill: polling shows a drop in the support of the healthcare reform bill. how is the white house reacting to that? >> we had a relevant poll out yesterday

meeting in montana today and criticized the media for showing angry protestors and not enough of the constructive meetings going on. obama added that while montana has bears, moose and elk, he claimed that washington mainly just has bull. an investigation in the santa cruz mountains in california. a series of wildfires continues to spread. only 5% of the blaze is under control. stocks finished the day down. the dow fell 76 points on the day and slipped a half percentage point for the week. chris wallace now has a preview of what is on "special report" tonight. caller: coming up, latest on how some people ended up on the white house e-mail list and healthcare provision end-of-life provision seems dead, at least for now. join me at 6:00 eastern, and now back to glenn beck in new york. glenn: hello, america, time to use your head, bringing you stories where the media and the government are not using their heads. welcome to bailout nation. we're all socialists now, remember? it started with the banks and then it went to the car companies an insurance companies and now tarp money c
-section? >> i have been to montana, that is one of the most nra saturated states in america. people take their personal liberties very seriously there. even for someone to stand up and say that i am an nra member, this would normally rattle the roof. i bought that was very revealing. let's assume that it was totally on the up and up and very legitimate. there are still some things that the president said today that are not getting near the target. for example, he continues to use the phrase 47 million. that figure is nonsense. there are a number of people who are uninsured because they don't fill out the forms yet they already qualify for medicaid and medicare. there are 12 million illegal aliens, is the president for to pay for every illegal person? there are a number of people who could afford insurance but they choose not to have it because they would rather have a new track or go to dinner more often. let's be honest about the figure. if we want to cover 5 million americans that cannot have insurance, i don't know anyone who has a problem with that. that is not that difficult. what t
on the road for a town hall. where is he headed? >> he is going to bozeman, montana to a county where he carried by 1600 votes. they have voted twice for him -- for george bush in the past. there is some sense and that they want to get max baucus' attention by going there, and montana is ground zero for health care reform, because that is where he is from. we have already seen people lining up to get tickets to the event. bill: there is a gallup poll out today that says independent voters are moving in a certain way. 35% are more sympathetic to the views of the protesters, opposed to 16% who are less sympathetic. how are these numbers being received? >> in the briefing yesterday, we heard robert kids say that some people were somewhat disappointed that he did not get a tougher response in new hampshire. he constantly talked about the food fight of the debate and have cable news is feeding on this, but clearly from the gallup poll, independents are starting to become sympathetic with these people protesting. certainly not good in terms of public opinion. bill: thank you. megyn: do you rem
: president obama takes his health care crusade to a town hall in montana. we will let you know what happened this time. >> you ought to go to one of those congressional health care meetings. [ laughter ] >> you would do really well there. >> plus, bill clinton takes on a heckler and jumps into the health care reform fray. >> i'm telling you, i don't care how low they drive support for, this with misinformation, the minute the president signs a health care reform bill, approval will go up. laura: is clinton helping obama or upstaging him? dick morris will analyze the situation. >> i don't think that it's going to be real pleasing for americans to consider health care being taken over by the feds. laura: the power of sarah palin. why she may be one of the most powerful voices in the health care reform debate. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now.

for 70% of the audience town halls there will be another one in montana tomorrow. 30% are set aside to sympathetic officials in the region. that's how things will be conducted in montana. white house says they like a rigorous robust debate. whether they get in their own town halls probably not. lawmakers are. shepard: thank you. mixed news from the jobs market. the number of americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits went up unexpectedly last week. that's according to the department of labor which reports there were 4,000 more first time claims than the week before. but at the same time we learned the total number of americans continuing to receive jobless benefits fell by more than 140,000, to just more than 6.2 million. the so-called experts were way off in guessing how much money spent in stores last month. they were expecting retail sales to rise, almost 1%. they did not. they went down. july sales down 0.1% in june it would have been worse had it not been cash for clunkers program. auto sales were up big last month. take those out of the pictures and retail sales wou
and moving to montana. pa palin employee said they are committed to each other and have not purchased land in family. one pro palin blog says "even offstage, liberals still attack." adds another, quote "the left can't get over sarah palin's derangement syndrome. they can't leave her and her family alone now that she is a private citizen." rahm emanuel reportedly made calls to television networks to pressure them to air the president's july 22 primetime news conference. "the washington post" writes that emanuel made calls to abc, nbc and cbs executives in an effort to persuade them to give up a chunk of their schedule. a cbs official says they feel pressured and that, quote, the news divisions also have mixed feelings about whether they are being used. the head of the network says about taking the news conference instead of regular programming, we lose more than $3 million a show. an nbc executive said he would feel better if white house officials were approaches us with the sense that they had something new to say, and kurtz said had it not been about henry gates and professor gates and se
. the president will hold two town hall meetings tomorrow in colorado and montana. he has trouble to win over opponents, but that does not seem to be hurting his popularity. according to a brand new fox news opinion dynamic poll, 53% of registered voters say they approve of the president's job performance tree that is a new low. 40% say they disapprove. shannon bream is in washington, d.c. it is interesting to watch the president at these town hall meetings. >> he is so charismatic and he is such a good communicator that during the campaign, thousands of people showed up. now when he goes to the town hall meetings, he is meeting different crowd to have tough questions for him. they want him to back up the rhetoric. the reality of getting stuff done is much tougher. a lot of americans are losing confidence in the president's ability to do that when it comes to health care reform. shepard: where do they see the strategy as having misfired? >> initially, it was put together that we have a lot of people are not covered, and you need to care about your neighbor. when people look at the number and
to be in montana and colorado. is montana today? because i think he is going to get some friction there. i think that he welcomes it. he has got to also worry about his accuracy because, number one, saying that he is going to lean out medicare and cut out waste, that's going to save enough money to pay for the plan is wrong. saying you are not going to tax anyone over $250,000 that's wrong. plans currently constituted in the house and they are not going to be -- they are not going to add up and be deficit neutral. dari: you know, i think one of the other, perhaps even a greater concern for obama is something that he also said yesterday. he almost kind of put his foot in his own mouth because he probably wanted to take it back once it came out of his mouth. he cited the post office as having problems. but u.p.s. and fedex is doing rather well. obviously the post office is government-run. which leads a lot of people to say well, if the post office is suffering, and it's government-run why in the world would we want government to run health care? i'm sure he regretted saying that because he kind of
of the action too. delaware, in attention to nevada montana and oregon are really exempt from a 1992 federal law which outlawed state from book making. using that loophole delaware lawmakers passed a bill early year this year to allow incasino sports betting it could make the state $55 million a year. >> one the reasons we are excited about this sports lottery product is because we believe people from throughout the region, throughout the country are going to come to visit delaware. >> since the bill's passage, lawsuits have been flying. first, a federal suit against the government filed by new jersey politicians. >> the four major pro sports leagues and the ncaa are suing as well. the nfl particularly angry that widespread legalized betting threatens the integrity of sports and creates a possibility of cheating and game-fixing. but new jersey says it has the most to lose. its 5 billion-dollar a year gambling industry in atlantic city is down 18% this year. >> with the mounting competition next door it's suing the government for sports bet be allowed in their state as well. tourism is new jersey
. >> the president is going to hold another town hall in montana on friday. >>> in nigeria, secretary of state hillary clinton making some news by comparing elections there to elections here. this involves the discussion of nigeria's problems with widespread voter fraud. >> another off-the-cuff comment about elections, this time, about nigeria, she brought up an election in the u.s., in 2000 she said -- >> in 2000 our presidential election came down to one state where the brother of the man running for president was the governor of the state. so, we have our problems, too. >> aides said she was not being editorial, she simply was making the point of how candidates would accept election results even if it might be flawed. >> this is going to raise eyebrows. >> right. i think one of the questions when she was running, will the real hillary clinton stand up. looks like she's doing pap. >> there is a presidential election in afghanistan next week. hundreds of marines and afghan troops launched a new push to take some controls on the taliban. >> action here from the front lines of the war in afghan
again for this weekend for two town hall meetings, first on friday in bolton, montana, then saturday in grand junction, colorado. wolf? >> he's going to be busy at both those meetings and other stops, as well. thanks very much, dan lothian. jack cafferty has "the cafferty file." jack? >>> there is another view of this, of course. when it comes to town hall meetings, the democrats might want to rethink their strategy. arlen specter and claire mccaskill are the latest to be drowned out by protesters. one woman in missouri told mccaskill, quote, if they don't let us vent our frustrations out, they will have a revolution, unquote. protesters at arlen specter's meeting said they think the obama administration is going too far with health care reform. one woman shouted out, quote, this is about dismantling this country. specter said he thinks the people proetsdsing are, quote, not necessarily representative of america, but he thinks they should be heard. president obama and the democrats seem to face an increasingly uphill battle with selling health care reform to a skeptical public. peopl
meeting in montana. leading those negotiations he got an earful that basically, if we are looking for a public option it is not going to happen. white house doesn't really have an ability to fight this that they really want to. >> mike emanuel, thanks very much. >> julie: now we want to know what you think. who do you trust more, your insurance company or the government. >> tweet us at twitter.com. "got one that said, i think the question would be better posed who are you more afraid of the health insurance companies or its government. >> i think the poll is on that. >> julie: we'll be talking to scott rasmussen about what americans will be thinking about right now. >> trace: it's considering taking over such a personal issue of our life. it's very scary. >> gregg: police making an arrest in a frightening and bizarre attack on the mayor. tom barrett recovering in the hospital he was beaten with a metal pipe. he was attacked last night as he was leaving wisconsin state fair with his family. the mayor had just come to the aid of a woman when she was attacked by the pipe wielding sus
in montana tomorrow. what is the message going to be, and has it changed at all? >> it should be interesting, because he is going to appear with senator max baucus from the middle of health-care negotiations. the county he is going to is a conservative county, and democrats as republicans to sign a civility pledge, but republicans said no, because that feels like they are being asked to be seen but not heard. a lot of people are waiting at to appear at this town hall. jane: an event on saturday also? >> yes. there are probably know people in the world who have done as many town hall meetings as barack obama. they feel that he will be able to reach out to people who make it in his face a little bit and say, let's calmed down and talk about our differences. jane: we have new rasmussen pulls out, saying that the approval rating is at its lowest. >> that is right. daily polls say that 47% somewhat approved, 52% disapprove, the lowest mark so far. a cause for concern for the white house. we expect that robert gibbs might be asked about it later, and we will get his reaction. gregg: one week befor

anything else? >> we have two town halls later in the week, one in montana, one in colorado. then the president will be back here for a bit forç some down time with his family. i do not think there are any specific venue announcements. i think the president believes the format of the town hall, in the ability to discuss directly with people their fears and concerns, has always been a tremendously valuable. >> is there a concern that if this misinformation machine continues, and the record cannot be corrected, as it likes, would it be difficult to get health care reform across? >> if the debate is being dominated by something that is not true, of course. but i do not believe the president believes, when all is said and done, that most people will make their decision based on something that is false, and proven false. çtake a couple questions at a town hall meeting. çwe have seen enough video to know that people are concerned about the bill. take one of those concerns and address it factually. >> so much attention now is being focused on debunking the myth, and you belie
